Apple’s retail business model: What business model?

Very interesting post over on Motley Fool about the lack of a coherent business model for Apple’s retail stores. The short version: thanks to some interesting accounting practices, it’s extremely difficult to tell if the retail stores are making money, or indeed if they will ever make money.
